Hi,

how efficient is Panda antivirus 2013. It has firewall, antivirus and virtual keyboard, and should be complete internet suite ?

Hopefully it's better nowadays?

 

The older versions weren't great.  I had it at work & ended up hating it.  Very slow, large memory footprint, the last straw was when malware was still getting onto the PC's anyway.  (incidentally I was also part of the Panda Cloud beta, that sucked too)

If you want an excellent antivirus, check out Kasperky. You can get it for $20 on Amazon.

You want Internet Security or PURE

It's good kit.  Not the best (that crown seems to be held by Kaspersky atm) but good nonetheless.

I love Panda Cloud now (ver 2.2.)  1.x certainly had issues, 2.1.1 still had notable issues on win8, but it's finally the product I wanted it to be.  I love Pros firewall.

The awkward part is 2014 just came out and I have no idea if those are upgradable or not.

You can download 2014 and use a key from 2013. Just make sure it's not older than a year for the license. All kaspersky products include updates to the latest version. So that isn't an issue at all.

I like the idea of Panda but for some reason I kept getting blue screen (bsod) errors in Windows when it was doing it's scan of system directories. I switched to AVG which worked fine and then bailed from that into Microsoft Security Essentials and have been with it since. :)

Webroot is far superior. Less resource usage and easy to install. Works on Server 2012 with not a problem at all. Very lean.

I had Panda and it was more resource intensive and would lock up quite a bit. 

 

 

I highly recommend WebRoot.
